Help 2007 ford ranger

Ok here will probably be my one and only post on this site so here it is:

After doing some research on here and other sites I want to confirm this info.

Truck info:Ford Ranger 2007 XLT 2wd extended cab with stock suspension

Stock rims have a bolt pattern of 5x4.5 and backspacing of 4.5
Stock tires are 225/70r15

I want to put,

XD Enduros bolt pattern 5x4.5 backspacing 3.75
Goodyear Duratracs 235/75r15

Will these fit without rubbing? has anyone done this?

Thank you, everything I have read says good to go but want to double check

A simple search in this very section you posted in would have yielded the results you're looking for. In fact it's posted as a sticky at the very very top.

235/75R15 are perfect for a 2wd coil-spring A-arm truck. They're just big enough to make it look beefier, but small enough to not rub with LOTS of clearance.

We need more information about the wheel. So I did some looking up for you. I assume you're getting the 15x7" KMC XD122 Enduro with the -6mm offset/3.76" backspace. If so, you're golden. It's only a 3/4" difference moving outward...you're golden.




Why let us know this will be your very first and likely very last post....makes guys like myself, who have quite a bit of knowledge, not want to post?? We get no thank you so what's the point? Do you own research.

Bc I figured I would get some kid saying use the "search button".... Cough cough... When I stated, that's exactly what I did. If you read my post carefully I provide all information needed. What I'm looking for is someone to confirm what I found or even someone that's all ready did it.

After signing up / posting I soon realized this was pointless and made the purchase anyways.

End thread

By the way THANK YOU for confirming and adding detail to what I already found. My tires and wheels are already here so if you (the forum) would like I can post pictures for future reference and knowledge.

Thank you for the picture! That looks really good ... I'll post a picture a soon as I get them on so it may not be till Monday.

If you don't mind me asking what is the speedo off by, I calculated a 10% error.

You're welcome!

Many come and go very very fast and some folks don't even bother replying especially when making a comment like you made. Hopefully you didn't take it the wrong way and I don't think you did.

10% difference between 225/70 and 235/75 seems like an unusually high percent of different. But it's been a while since I've done the math. I feel a jump that you're about to do would result in very little speedometer/odometer difference.....IE a no-issue issue. Just remember the gauge and odo will read slower than actual speed by a very little bit.

I hope this link works.... 225/70-R15 vs 235/75-R16 Tire Comparison - Tire Size Calculator

Just remember at 60mph by the gauge, you're actually traveling 65. And at 30 by the gauge, you're actually traveling 32mph.



Please do post pictures of the combo on the truck!! That is actually one of the wheels on my list of possibilities when I'm ready to re-rim this this truck.

I calculated it as a function of speed...F(mph)... So take the speed and multiply it by .10 (10%). 60 is 66, 30 is 33 But yes you're exactly correct

Also I rounded up for my factor of error so it wasn't exactly 10% but better then getting a ticket in sensitive areas like school zones ect....

Ok let me see if I can figure out how to post a picture

I'm not able to do it from my phone so I'll get them up tomorrow. But I couldn't be happier with how they fit and look.

Hell...I just use my GPS to give me my speed. But I have noticed that going from stock tires to 31" tires gives me about an 10.2% speedometer error.
